    -Creates *iPod 5.5G, Classic, Nano (video), AppleTV, iPhone, iPod Touch compliant videos
    -Files should also be PS3 Compliant (Untested)
    -High Resolution Output for iPod/TV Out use
    -1 or 2 pass selectable encoding

    USAGE:

    -Browse to the unzipped 3GP-ADC folder
    -Start the Converter by double clicking the 3GP_Converter.exe Icon, (A desktop shortcut icon is also provided if you want to change it)
    -Change the Output Folder to your choice by clicking the "Browse" button on the GUI
    -Open the file you want to convert to determine whether it is Fullscreen or Widescreen and select Preset accordingly
    -Drag and Drop files onto the Upper Window of the GUI
    -GUI will close when Conversion is Complete or Optionally Shutdown PC
    -Finished file will be in Output folder with a log file
    -Check your Video, delete the log file and import it into iTunes
    -Sync to your iPod/iPhone or stream it to your AppleTV

    PRESETS EXPLAINED:
    -Fullscreen 1-Pass CRF 22 - 512x384 1 pass with bitrate and filesize determined by CRF (Constant Rate Factor) of 22
    -Fullscreen 2-Pass 800kbps - 512x384 2 passes with target bitrate of 800kbps VBR (Variable Bitrate)
    -Widescreen 1-Pass CRF 21 - 624x352 1 pass with bitrate and filesize determined by CRF (Constant Rate Factor) of 21
    -Widescreen 2-Pass 800kbps - 624x352 2 passes with target bitrate of 800kbps VBR (Variable Bitrate)
    -*Anamorphic Widescreen CRF 20 - 640x272 1 pass CRF 20 with cropping for 2.35 a/r Anamorphic NTSC DVD Sources
    -*Anamorphic Widescreen 800kbps - 640x272 2 passes 800kbps VBR with cropping for 2.35 a/r Anamorphic NTSC DVD Sources
    -4:3 Letterboxed to 16:9 800kbps - 624x352 2 passes 800kbps VBR with cropping to correct 16:9 Sources broadcast in 4:3 Letterbox
    -Above Presets + Deinterlace - Presets with deinterlacing for interlaced sources
    -Audio for all presets is AAC 2ch @ 112kbps
    * If you are unsure if your source is Anamorphic just use a Widescreen Preset


    HOW IT WORKS:
    -Input Video and Audio is decoded and encoded to H.264 by ffmpeg to a Temp file(s)
    -Temp Audio and Video files are muxed together by Nicmp4Box for iTunes Compliance
    -Temp files are deleted after muxing
    -The muxed finished file is written to the destination folder with a log file

    HINTS AND TIPS:
    -Right click on the GUI for further options
    -DVD Video files (.vob) must be joined into 1 large file before converting
    -Periodically delete the x264 passlog file from the 3GP-ADC folder as it can become large over time
    -The progress meter misreads with some input files
    -Presets can be created or modified by editing the "transcoding .ini" file if you know ffmpeg syntax

    Hi,
    Users please note I'm getting reports that Vista seem to be unsupported at this time even in administrator mode. My guess is due to the shell programs (ffmpeg, Nicmp4box) running behind the scenes. I don't have Vista to test it on at this time.

    If anyone is able to get it running on Vista I would very much appreciate that info to pass on to the website so Vista users can use it as well.

    Thanks in Advance -GMaq
